Big Fat, Hairy Pig

No, I'm not dating again.

Drivers in Wisconsin created a traffic jam as they rubber-necked to get a look at a 450-500 lb. sow that had been hit by a semi-truck. One driver said he was looking for tusks, but if there were any, "somebody got to them before I did."

Large populations of wild boars are thought to inhabit the wilderness in the area, but seeing any is rare. Seeing one hit by a car is even rarer. The state considers them a threat to both the environment and agriculture and small game hunters are allowed to shoot them all year long.
